This is a recipe from Belize I did a few years ago. It's full of flavors. Read the note above. Note : The flavour and texture will be better if well packed in saran wrap and put in the fridge for a few days.
- 3 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups carrots, finely grated
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut, grated
- 1 cup sultana raisin
- Preheat oven at 350°F
- In a big bowl, beat eggs until foaming. Add oil and vanilla. Add carrots, coconut and raisins, mix well.
- In another bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Sift in the first mixture. Mix well (can use your hands).
- Pour in a greased and floured loaf pan. Cook about 1 hour.
- Remove from the pan and let cool on a rack. Note : The flavour and texture will be better if well packed in saran wrap and put in the fridge for a few days.
Yet another one of those recipes that I made before Thanksgiving (several days before, in fact), then wrapped & set aside to being out on the big day ~ It was another one of those new additions to my Thanksgiving buffet that was a big hit! Particularly with me, though, since I'm a really big fan of all 3 title ingredients! Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag]
This is dense, very flavorful quick bread. What kept this from a 4th star was the texture, I'd like it moister, as it had a dry texture in the mouth. Instead of all white I used 3/4 cup white flour, 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour, and 1/2 cup coconut flour which add a nice extra umph of flavor. I also used sweetened coconut and reduced the sugar by a couple of TBLS and the sweetness level was just right. In looking at similar recipes, most use 1 cup of oil to 2 cups flour & 2 cups grated veggie. I think increasing the oil or adding apple sauce would solve the moistness issue. I made 1 loaf and 9 small muffins. Made for "Please Review My Recipe" Tag
This is a nice loaf of bread that is sweet and smells wonderful. I do want to say that the flavors in this bread really do need to develop. My son and I had a piece hot out of the oven and we were not impressed and I was actually worried that I would end up throwing the loaf away. Even later last night I nibbled a bit and still was concerned. This morning for breakfast however the bread was very flavorful. This bread is a bit crumbly though it isn't dry and I wasn't expecting that. It rises higher than a typical quick bread but I wonder if this could easily make 2 loaves. As I filled the pan I thought to myself that this was a lot of batter for one loaf.
